Say hello to my little friend! :)

Bridgette LOVED this idea. Sit on the table in a bowl of food - oh yeah, baby! She's such a good sport. She was crazy nuts eating the pasta until I barked, yeah, barked, like a little dog.. like her.. and she perked and I shot like mad and told her what a sweet girl. Then we got her off the table fast and she & Lexi ate all the pasta that stuck to her fur. Treats for everyone! :)

Shot with one softbox in my kitchen. Adjusted levels, selective color to juice up my purple wall, tweeked contrast, sharpen.

HAHAHAHA....good job getting the doggie cleaned up. hahaha. The bread is just a tad soft in the focus and is a little large and destracting, this is still just totally cute

Great shot- the only thing i find a little distracting are the plates, they look like they're floating in space... maybe would be better with a plain black background.

Oops, never mind, I see the background is actually a dull red now, I think my monitor needs to be callibrated. Still might be better without the plates, though.

Holding still for this pose? Man....this is a real photographer's dog!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2007 09:41:31 PM
Sooooo adorable! Looks a lot like my dog, but she wouldn't be sitting there like your darling. She'd be eating the pasta!

Making it a favorite. Excellent in every way!

I am going to report you to whatever authority there is for cruelty to animals..... naa just kidding :))) I like this, good idea. I would have cleaned up those couple of spots on the table first before taking this shot though, otherwise good. Made me smile :)

Very well composed fun shot. Back to bump you up to 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 10:30:30 AM
hahahaha!! i wasn't expecting that! that's laugh out loud funny. however, to be critical, cutting off the plate on the wall is rather distracting. i'm giving you 9 for laughs and having the courage to stick your pooch in a bowl of pasta!! LOL
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2007 10:38:58 AM
well... it's a start... (but I wouldn't try those spaghetti!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 10:27:05 PM
Awww! What a cute pooch! I like the clarity of your image and the humor you want to convey. However, I think it borderlines animal abuse ;) I would have given this a point lower but because of your very patient (or perhaps terrified) subject's outstanding cooperation, a 7!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 02:13:43 PM
lovely dog, must be tiny to fit in a dish like that, wish the plate hadn't been on the wall behind as it draws your eyes away from the main part of the photo, nice anyway

brilliant idea, well executed! very good DOF, good crop and color. dirt on the table and white spot on the wall are minor distractions. had needed a little more light from the left

Too cute. The shot dosen't seem to be from the tabletop though, just a bit above it. Also the white spots on the table are a bit distracting.
